Strona 119 - Where the great Sun begins his state Robed in flames and amber light, The clouds in thousand liveries dight; While the ploughman, near at hand, Whistles o'er the furrow'd land, And the milkmaid singeth blithe, And the mower whets his scythe, And every shepherd tells his tale Under the hawthorn in the dale.
Strona 106 - For them no more the blazing hearth shall burn, Or busy housewife ply her evening care: No children run to lisp their sire's return, Or climb his knees the envied kiss to share. Oft did the harvest to their sickle yield, Their furrow oft the stubborn glebe has broke: How jocund did they drive their team afield ! How bowed the woods beneath their sturdy stroke!
Strona 69 - Thus challenged forth, see thither one by one, From every side assembling playmates run ; A thousand wily antics mark their stay, A starting crowd impatient of delay. Like the fond dove from fearful prison freed, Each seems to say, " Come, let us try our speed...

Strona 114 - Confess ye now how frivolous and vain is the might of an earthly king compared to that great power who rules the elements, and can say unto the ocean, ' Thus far shalt thou go, and no farther.
Strona 1 - When daisies pied, and violets blue, And lady-smocks all silver white, And cuckoo-buds of yellow hue, Do paint the meadows with delight...
Strona 69 - Come let us try our speed;" Away they scour, impetuous, ardent, strong, The green turf trembling as they bound along...
